The Curse of the Creepy Crawlies,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: "Doctor Who": Hornets' Nest: Hive of Horror v. 5 (BBC Audio) (Audio CD)
The series finally comes into its own when it matters most. The conclusion of the Hornet's Nest series is an exciting yarn; completely bonkers and rich in the type of language that Tom Baker lives for.
Of course, the big selling point of the series is that Tom Baker, THE Doctor, returns to the role for the first time after falling off that telescope many years ago. It was great to hear him again and , for me effortlessly, reprised the role. Richard Franklin as Mike Yates is in top form too with his possible betrayal scenes being effective. Susan Jameson as Mrs Wibbsey stole the show though. It was fun having a companion that so negative and insulting! I hope she can be reunited with the 4th Doctor in a future story.
Paul Magrs script is barking, but the listening experience is at least memorable and there is enough cleverness and wit in there, matched by Tom's peformance, to pull it off.
I hope Tom returns again soon...
